Veterans Day is Monday, November 11th, and all Law Library locations will be closed to take time to thank all veterans, active-duty military members, and their families for their service to our country. Although we will be closed on Monday, the Downtown location will be open regular hours Saturday, November 9, and all locations will be open normal hours on Tuesday, November 12.

Veterans Day originated from the annual celebration of the end of the fighting between the Allied forces and the Germans in 1918 during the First World  War, which was called Armistice Day. Although it was originally designed to be a celebration of only veterans of the First World War, in 1954 Congress, at the urging of veterans organizations, changed the name of the holiday to “Veterans Day” and expanded the celebration to honor all veterans.

If you still need to do legal research this Veterans Day, you can access many online resources while the Library is closed.
